Despite hitting a career-high 46 home runs in 1998, Canseco drew minimal attention in the free agent market. In 1999, he signed a three-year contract with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays . The contract included a clause stating that if Canseco were to be elected to the Hall of Fame he would be depicted as a member of the Devil Rays. That year he took the American League by storm, hitting 10 home runs in April, and leading the AL with 31 by the All-Star break (including number 400 for his career against Toronto's Kelvim Escobar). On pace for 60+ homers for the season, he was voted to the AL All-Star team as the DH, making his first All Star selection in 7 years. However, he injured his back days before the mid-summer classic and missed the game, as well as the Home Run Derby in Fenway Park. He finished the season with 34 home runs for the 1999 season.  
[ Editor's Note: Chryste Gaines, MBA, Olympic gold and bronze medal sprinter and former teammate of Marion Jones in the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, stated the following in a Dec. 22, 2008 email to in response to the IOC ruling:
"We are being unfairly punished. If the drug testing agencies cannot determine if an athlete is taking performance enhancing drugs how are the teammates supposed to know?... It negates all the family functions, church functions, and social events we missed in the name of winning an Olympic medal." ]
Most women (girls in the case of Mimi Alford the WH intern) didn’t get any “documentation”. All we have is their (in some cases incredibly detailed) accounts, but no signed document by JFK saying “I had sex with you.” No tapes or films either. But all you have to do is read about the Kennedy family to know that sexual infidelity was all over the place. As I said however, to me except for possible blackmail or security leak threats, these things didn’t matter. Leaders’ private lives aren’t the same as their public policy-making decisions. JFK didn’t have to buy prostitutes (at least later in his life) because they came freely furnished or women came to him (or he to them) with no strings attached (during the affairs). Most historians accept that this went on. It’s not new information.
